Papers should reflect scholarship that reflects on the social context of pressing issues that affect education in challenging times. The example of social scientist C. Wright Mills and especially, his seminal publication THE SOCIOLOGICAL IMAGINATION, serve as a focus and inspiration for this invitation. Mills worked “against the grain” of the exclusionary, unequal society in which he worked and studied in a time, with that seminal publication in 1959. In his chapter “The Promise” which contributors are invited to consult; he argues many points. But no point is more important than the constant call for research which reflects on and responds to conditions in education which are impacted by social problems that arise from preventable injustices. The sustained critical study of these conditions, including the idea that research should be driven by the universal social goal of a democratic, inclusive, responsive citizenship. It is research which also reflects and reports on actually existing communities, institutions and individual “projects” which seek to emancipate, to transform social arrangements from oppression toward “enlightenment” of mind and body. Reports of ongoing efforts in communities, schools, organizations are all welcome. Studies of such efforts and their impact are also welcome.
